Post Penile Surgery Treatment
After any surgery, a scar forms. With time, this scar begins to retract, in what is known as scar retraction. Scar retraction, results in a shrinkage of the area where the surgery is performed.
Whereas scar retraction is not a problem in most surgeries, it becomes a serious problem in prostatic surgery because the body part that eventually shrinks is the penis. The key to preventing post-surgical penile shortening is the SizeTrac.
Usually, penile shortening takes place after any of the following surgeries:
- Prostate cancer surgery in T1 or T2 Phases.
- Curvature correction surgery.
- Peyronie's Disease correctional surgery. (most of the cases resulted in a shortening of up to 3 cm)
- Surgery for traumatic lesions to the Penis
- Urethral narrowing correction surgery
- Penis enlargement surgery
- Penile implant surgery
- Bladder related surgeries for bladder cancer, urinary incontinence, and surgery to heal traumatic lesions to the bladder.
All of the surgeries listed above commonly cause penile shortening. The only effective alternative to prevent penis retraction after a prostatic surgery is by using SizeTrac. By keeping a constant force of traction on the penis, pulling it outwards, it prevents scar retraction from pulling the penis inwards and shortening it.
